Darcy the Dingo is 9 years old and loves to learn, have fun and to explore!
Being a dingo, Darcy originally comes from Australia and is now living in Ireland. Darcy has always loved making new friends, interacting with them and encouraging them to learn along with him.
Darcy loves writing to his new friends from around the world and sharing with them the different things he is learning. Not only does he like writing to his friends but he also loves reading about how they are getting on and learning from them too!
For Darcy he believes that together as friends you can learn lots of new things from each other and have great fun too!
Who am I?
My name is Eimear Kelly and I am a very proud mum, wife and owner or Darcy the Dingo.
Before becoming a mum, my career varied but was primarily within hospitality and office management with my more recent and proudest role becoming a parent and a stay at home mum.
Over time Darcy the Dingo has progressed and become a reality and during this journey , I feel very lucky to not only have the support of my wonderful husband but also our children.
Our children love that not only that their mammy can be at home with them but she can run a business too! When our eldest recently did a "Show and Tell" in school by his own choice about Darcy the Dingo and wrote a book, that to me was a super proud moment as a parent and business owner.
How Darcy began
When my brother who lives in Melbourne wanted to connect with my children, his niece and nephew whom he'd yet to meet, Darcy the Dingo was there to help make that connection.
Through Darcy my brother could connect with them in a unique way and they not only gained a friend in Darcy, but they also made a strong connection with their Uncle. When they first met their Uncle at age 4 and 2, the friendship with their him was clear to see.
Darcy not only became a friend to my children but he was a link between an Uncle who wanted to connect with his niece and nephew in a fun new way, get to know them and and encourage them along the way.
It was when a piece I wrote for MummyPages was shared (you can read it here) about Darcy the Dingo and how he helped our son, reading the feedback on the piece encouraged me to share Darcy with others.
